Frisco City Council to consider rate increase for trash and recycling services
Council will consider increasing residential waste collection services by $3 per home per month in 2018 and $1 per home per month in 2019 during Tuesday's meeting.

Progressive Waste Solutions is asking the city to consider the rate increase after the company invested millions of dollars in additional assets to better serve customers, according to city documents. After an area analysis, city staff determined that Frisco's waste collection rates are well below market rates.

The meeting begins at 5 p.m. at Frisco City Hall, 6101 Frisco Square Blvd.
